Society Today – March meeting

The State of Education Today.  With our education system under extreme pressure to deliver despite significant budget cuts, Jill North led this group’s analysis of all levels of learning in England.  She noted that courses were being cut, and even some subjects dropped, to try to balance the books and pressures were even affecting parents.  Some felt exam stress […]
